Re: GTOCP4 Caps

Hello Linwood,

 

We do sell a full set of plastic covers for all the ports and doohickeys on the CPx control box as Mike mentions below.  But you won’t need to request them; each mount is shipped with the set.  Some folks choose to replace these with metal covers later.  I hope this is helpful.

Ah, perfect, when the mount is ready I will ask for one.

 

Mine will be kept inside when not in use, so plastic is likely to work fine.  But when in use it’s a heavy, heavy dew environment so covering unused ports is a goodness.

 

Thanks.

Hi Linwood

Actually, Astro-Physics offers a set of plastic covers for all of the connectors on the GTOCP4/5 and the mount motors. You will have to call them to order a set. The interest in the metal covers is because they are more durable, and they will stay put, but as a minimum you should get a set of the plastic ones. I think they run about $15.00.
